#89 of 212 Volvo S60 2.5T - 2007 demo - help on pricing
Aug 24, 2007 (8:16 am)
I am new to this forum and can use some help from anyone that can offer some pricing options or "what I'm supposed to do now" scenarios. I am looking at a 2007 Volvo S60 2.5T; White; Premium Package; Sport Package; Climate Package. MSRP is $36,845. This is a demo; no dents, dings or issues with the car - approx 7800 miles. Does not have one feature needed, the Convenience package with the homelink for the garage door opener. The dealer is advertising the car for $27,990. What should I go back and offer or ask for? I have a trade in (1998 Saturn) and financing is done, not going through dealer. I'm in Alabama. Any help or suggestions for me is greatly appreciated - I feel the price should be lower and that they can throw in the Conv. Pkg or the homelink due to this being a demo...just not sure what to do or ask for at this point. Help.

Not sure if you have already bought the car. But based on some of the postings here and my own experience, you should be able to get $7k off $36845. So close to $30k. On top of this you should deduct for the mileage. If you look at a '02 S60, it is worth about 10k to 11k. So ($30k-$11k) / (12kmile/year x 6years) = $0.263/mile. So 7800 miles cost $2058. But consider it is the first 7800 miles, I don't think getting $4k off is unreasonable. So maybe $26,000 is a decent price?

Here is what I got for buying for '07 S60 2.5 FWD with options: sport, premium, xenon lights, rear park assist, metalic paint, convenience = msrp $38,970. I paid $30,500 but it had 4200 miles as dealer car. Not sure if I got a good deal. Resale values scare me because I see Acura TL seems to do about 4 grand better after 3 years.

Possibly one of the Hosts can help me with this question..
I remember seeing a post a few weeks ago, I dont remember if it was in the Volvo boards or maybe Ford. It had a link that showed you how much above or below invoice particular car makers are selling. I remember Volvo being something like .5% below.
Does anyone remember that link or site?
#93 of 212 S60 Rebates and Pricing
Oct 01, 2007 (1:58 pm)
Looking at 2007 S60 2.5T w/premium package. Any idea of fair price? Know that there is $$ still out there and was told by a dealership today that Volvo may have additional monies for October. I am assuming that and cash rebates should come off the invoice price? Any help is appreciated.
#95 of 212 Price for a Loaner/Demo
Oct 06, 2007 (1:33 am)
I have an offer for a new 2007 S60 2.5T w/metallic paint and premium for 28K w/o tax title and fees. The dealership has quite a few 2.0T's on the lot. Do I have room to deal? They also have some loaners that are due out of rotation very soon. They said that they do not have any idea of price. Will the $4500 rebate be applicable for the loaner? What about a deduction for mileage? It will have approximately 4-5000 miles on the loaner. The salesman said that the loaner would be considered a new car, even tho it was never titled. He suggested that I wait and see what kind of pricing I could get vs. the new car. Any thoughts?
#96 of 212 Loaner/Demo Prices ???
Oct 07, 2007 (7:38 am)
Before I buy a new 2007 S60 2.5T, the dealer mentioned that they have a few cars coming out of the loaner pool. They will have approx 6000 miles on them. The dealer does not know what they will sell for (they still have a month in the pool), but did say that they would be eligible for the $4500 cash rebate. What other kind of discount can I expect? I am trying to weigh whether I want to buy a new car or a loaner. Is waiting for the loaner a good deal? Any help is appreciated.
#97 of 212 Console or Congratulate?

Possible Remorse. Please console or congratulate. Looking for help.
Newly Minted Deal:
S60 2008 2.5Turbo AWD
Blue (the light blue); Tan Interior
Lease 400 per month
Buy out 17550 after 36 month Lease
We looked, drove and priced pre-owned S60s, both 04 (23K miles for 23K) and an 05 and decided that the deal listed above was the best value. The dealer said we could only choose between the light blue (tan interior) or the maple (black interior). We chose the light blue (tan interior with grey and brown trim). I think it is a standard type of color and trim not sure.
We signed this evening (Saturday night). My question is, "Did we secure a fair if not a better than fair deal?" My only concern after the fact is whether or not we could have leased a dark blue with black interior for same lease price (from another dealership).
#98 of 212 Premium Package price

Who knows why the price of S60 Premium Package drops from $2995 (2007) to only $995 (2008). All features are almost the same?
